Administrative and European law
The Constitution of December 17, 1962 states that the Principality of Monaco is subject to the rule of law and is committed to the respect of fundamental rights and freedoms. The Principality also recognizes the principle of the hierarchy of laws. In this framework, some rules apply to the State itself.
The Supreme Court protects the fundamental rights and freedoms arising out of the Constitution and is deemed to be the oldest constitutional court in the world.
Beyond its economic and demographic uniqueness, the Principality of Monaco is a living space where difficulties with the administration can be encountered.
We can argue before the Supreme Court which reviews the legality of the administration’s decisions.
We act in the framework of the relationships between the administration and our clients, and we are qualified to contest any national administrative decision. Since the accession of Monaco to the Council of Europe, it is now possible to invoke the European Convention on Human Rights in the framework of these claims.
We can also intervene before any international court; particularly before the European Court of Human Rights.
